Students concurrently study up to six challenging subjects that instill a global perspective with cross-cultural understanding. IB students learn through inquiry, and gain a sense of social responsibility, independence and critical-thinking skills vital to university studies.

IB students can apply for university credit, based on their results in IB examinations.

IB graduates gain both the Ontario Secondary School Diploma and an IB Diploma.
